When teaching preschool piano you cannot make any assumptions about the educational abilities of your students. Your little learners will arrive at your studio with a wide range of learning experiences. Some students may know how to count to 10 while others may not know how to recognize their numbers. Some students will know the entire alphabet while others will struggle to recognize the first three letters.
Before teaching any new skill to a preschooler, you must assess their prior knowledge; and if you discover a gap, you can remedy the situation before moving on.
Today’s activity helps to tackle a serious stumbling block for preschoolers…
Preschoolers (and older children!) often struggle to identify their left hands and right hands. When teaching early piano lessons, it’s essential that your young kiddos master this skill. Assuming that your students already know their rights from their lefts can cause problems once it’s time to start reading on the staff.
Our Left Vs. Right printable (found after the image) is a fun way to double-check a preschool or primer student’s understanding of left and right in a game-based adventure.
